Are your children fascinated by Minecraft or into creating cartoons and anime? Join Ronalyn Ewert and Carly Morrisseau during the afternoons in Week 3 to develop game ideas and create drawings, pixelated selfies, and interactive art. Are your teen artists interested in animation or learning the first steps to game design and making video games? Check out the teens classes with Marcel Laurin during Week 3. Do your little ones love to get creative with paint, clay, rainbow unicorns, and sparkles? Leave the mess to us, and bring your kids to the gallery so they can have fun and set their imagination free in Week 1 with Mud to Mug and Colour Your World or Imagination Station in Week 2 with Hannah Seitter. Children can become Art Stars as they create mini-murals and Star Blanket paintings in Week 3 in a unique opportunity to work with amazing downtown mural artists from Brandon and Winnipeg! There is something for everyone in a wide range of workshops this summer featuring T-shirt design, Harry Potter themes, superhero puppets, watercolour painting and more.
